Skylight Roof Tarp After Storm Damage in Dallas
There is much to appreciate about skylights. They offer both aesthetic and energy-saving benefits. No need to use electric lighting when you have beams of sunshine coming through. Skylights let sunshine flow in while keeping water flow from rain out.
Like anything else on a home or building, they deteriorate over time. Sometimes the skylight itself or the flashing around it is damaged by a storm. Weaknesses caused by skylight damage make a way for water and moisture to creep in.
Slippery floors from a leaky skylight isn’t the only problem caused by intrusive rain. There is also a risk of secondary damage like mold growth or rotting materials. The sooner you address this leaky situation, the better!
For over 30 years, SERVPRO has offered storm damage restoration and has repaired damage to rooftops in the Dallas area, along with skylights. Roof tarp and board up is the first step we take. Tarping keeps damaging dew and rain from entering the weak points. This protection measure also reassures the insurance adjuster that measures were taken to prevent secondary damage.
Lingering moisture creates the conditions for toxic mold growth, and damp materials may rot or warp. Our process includes a thorough search for any water damage. If such damage is found, our trained water damage specialists see to it that any trapped water is completely removed.
Our aim is always to salvage the original materials rather than replace them, but when recovery isn’t possible, our team is equipped to do complete building and reconstruction services.
The longer you wait, the more likely it is that secondary damage will happen. Act soon to prevent denial of your insurance claim. Contact SERVPRO, and we’ll quickly address roof damage, flashing damage, or damaged skylights. We’re here around the clock to help you with your water damage emergencies.
